Oh, hey there Rob. Good to see you around, and thanks for pointing me to that interesting snippet. I'm quite familiar with that show, but I suppose I didn't listen closely enough in the past to pick that up.

I was somewhat hoping for a snarky critical remark from you, but a friendly greeting was a pleasant surprise. This place has been too peaceful lately, and consequently not too exciting. Just so you know, you are partially to blame for that. You must be pretty busy lately eating haggis, playing bagpipes, and keeping your fair skin out of the sun (I think that's what you people do all day) :P

What's wrong? Too offensive?

Ehh, what do you expect? I come from the laziest generation of Americans to date.

I wouldn't fault you for consuming too much alcohol and fried fish.

Oy, whippersnapper! I can be held to account for many things but over consumption of alcohol and fried fish don't feature high on the list (not unless you count fish sauteed in butter and herbs as just some kind of smartass frying of course...).

Oy vey, old coot! Twas merely a lazy attempt at humor, pointing out the stereotype that Scots drinks heavily and love fried fish.

I was just listening to something that reminded me of the DS snippet you posted. Check out 6:15 – 7:27 on Alligator (Track 9):

I know I've heard the GDTRFB tease a few times in '60s shows, but I'm not sure if this is the first one. This version of Alligator with a nice jam sandwiched in between is also one of my favorite versions. Nothing tops 03/16/68 though.
